is not cool. >> let's talk about -- let's talk about appealing to latino voters. there's a new poll out today. back in 2008 mccain had 31% of latino vote. that was not as good as george w. bush in 2004 he had 44% of latino vote. romney need at least a quarter to a third of latino vote toeshs competitive in states like colorado where the debate is and that kind of thing. real quickly because i want to get to donna on this issue. what does he need to do to appeal to latino voters? >> i think latino voters need to know more about mitt romney. they know very little. precious little about him. the little they do know they don't like. he has begun to change his tone. ep needs to continue doing latino outreach and doing events, doing interviews, doing media, pouring money and resources into paid media and to outreach efforts. >> donna to that point, romney has actually moved closer to president obama on immigration issues just very recently saying he's not is going to rerocky the visas, deport young illegal immigrants under the new law here. does that present a problem to the president if he moves c
the widest gap. it is something we are being attentive to. african-american, latino, native american and samoan. and while the district overall trend was 10% growth, what you notice over a five-year trend is african-american growth has bested the district average of 13% improvement, latino at 10% equal to the district's growth, native american at 14%, and samoan at 11%. the next slide is similar, but in the content area of mathematics on the state test. again, 8.2% district overall growth trend, african-american comparison 13% growth over five years, latino 10%, native american 7, and samoan 11%. >> superintendent, i'm just wondering if there is anyway maybe later on to get the numbers of where the anglo and asian-american students are. >> okay. so, maybe in this next slide, we get to that point. so, this next slide is actually on the english language arts achievement gap. so, what's highlighted in this one are two line graphs, one for african-american/latino, and the top line graph actually represents the district average. and what i want to point out is, again, a different way to r

problem. it's cause and effect. how much money does the african-american, latino community, the samoan community get out of the capital project? what is the unemployment rate of the same people that we're talking about? where do you spend your money? because you can't wait till a kid gets to school then all of a sudden he's going to do something and they come up with no money in their house, home. for the parents to help kid. and that's the city and the school district. take a look at how much money that went towards communities that we are talking about. it's cause and effect. if you don't put the money out there in those communities, look what happened out at the school, tearing down the willie brown academy. no blacks. and then you get out here and talk about everything else, but cannot talk about the real problem. the real problem is it's discriminatory and exploitation and lockout of those communities. the black community, the latino community and of course the -- everybody that's locked out. we need to deal with that. now, give me the statistics on that. i heard statistics on eve
is not going to win the latino vote but the question now is how much is he going to lose it by. the president is now up 52 points amongst latino voters compared to six weeks ago, the support has dropped from 26 to 21%. back in august, romney said he was aiming for 38% of the hispanic vote. that was seven points more than what john mccain had in 2008. latinos are the largest minority group in the united states. 23.7 million are eligible to vote in this election. that is a record but turnout is traditionally lower for this minority than white or black voters overall. some churches are working to turn out the latino and african american vote bypassing out voter registration cards in battle ground states and asking people to promise to participate in caravans to get souls to the polls on election day. and since latinos are not likely to vote for mitt romney it is not stopping him from trying to win them over. he is going to honor the temporary work permits that allow young people to stay in the country. we're back in just a minute. what not to wear. >>and now to my point. tha
like it is a ploy to get the conservative latino vote? >> i think that it is a little bit of desperation. it is something you might have expected months earlier. what's shocked me kind of up until this point is romney was pushed so far to the right in the primary because he was really worried about santorum and all of them, perry and because he had this history as the governor of massachusetts and had a reputation as being more of a moderate, he -- especially on immigration really took a hard right position, to the right of rick perry, to the right of almost everyone else running and he never really tacked back. he's kind of stuck with that all the way through and i think finally he may be starting to realize well, we need something to offer. the problem is at this point a lot of the perceptions and a lot of the perceptions of romney really historically negative for an actual nominee of the party. have sunken in. so i don't know if you can really make a fundamental change in how people perceive you. but he's got

in denver tomorrow. mitt romney is trailing far behind in support from latino voters, and he made news on illegal immigration today. back in june, president obama announced that he would not deport illegal immigrants who came here as children with their parents. well, today romney told the "denver post": >> pelley: jan crawford is covering the romney campaign. jan, that's new. >> reporter: well, scott, this marks the first time that romney has said he's not going to take away the two-year visas from the people holding them. campaign sources say he's not going to extend them and romney said in the interview that's not going to be necessary because he's going to be offering long-term immigration reform. but in two-year visa program is popular with hispanics, that's a group that could decide the election and romney's got to make up some ground. there's a new cnn poll that has the president with 70% of the vote among hispanics compared to romney's 26%. romney is hitting the president hard on immigration. he's saying he's playing politics with this issue, he's passing what he called a stopg

gingrich campaign senior advisor david winston and nbc latino contributor, a senior fellow at the university of texas. good morning to both of you. will mitt romney have to and be able to defend paul ryan's budget plan at the debate tomorrow? >> clearly, the selection of paul ryan was an intent to give, sort of fill out this alternative. how was mitt romney going to be an alternative to whatever president obama's policies were. that was a strategic shift from it being just simply a referendum on the president. it's not, it wasn't so much does he have to defend everything paul ryan did? it's how does paul ryan supplement what mitt romney is going to say in terms of how he offers this alternative and what we are going to see in terms of the debate is how the campaign decides to define that. >> paul ryan the last couple of days has taken a lot of criticism for his interview on fox news sunday when chris wallace grilled him how he paid for a 20% tax cut he and mitt romney proposed. he had no details. he was asked the question six or seven times. to be fair, has either side real
the numbers it shows that key parts of president obama's coalition african-americans, latinos, are actually putting a high importance on the debates which actually kind of shows the challenge that mitt romney has to actually get his side as enthusiastic about it. >> a shrinking group of undecided voters, chris cizilla, what is the strategy of both sides to reach those people who are still undecided? >> you saw the clip you played with mitt romney in colorado, president obama on sunday night in las vegas, both basically what they both said is the media wants this to be a back and forth brawl, we're going to be serious and focus on the issues because they understand that when it comes to undecided voters, tend to be people, not always, politically independent. those kind of people don't like the nastiness, the back and forth. partisans love that. but independents don't like it. the messaging is i'm a serious person, these are serious times, and we need someone who has the ability, capacity, demonstrated record to lead. so i actually think both of them will be kind of the serious and sober pol
and said i've been voting my he whole life. i'm 88 and 90 years old, and now i can't vote. latino voters say i'm put under this requirement possibly that cannot be obtained. i cannot get my i.d. under these circumstances. is it harder to get people to support felons in some cases who have been convicted of obviously violent crimes? is that part of the roadblock at all or not? >> yeah. what helps here is for folks to really focus on just what a wide swath of people and month gets impacted. you know, we heard from charles dutton today on the tv show "the rock" back in the '90s who for 31 years after he got out of prison could not vote paying millions of dollars and talking about how he was subjected to taxation without representation even after he served his time. it helps folks to focus on the history. these laws were put in place for a reason. they were put in place as a wave right after the civil war. in states like virginia you talked about earlier it said quite plainly the person that made the argument for this law in 1901 made it very plain. he said because of this law, the darky wil
